A Regional Seminar Sponsored By The Korea Standards Research Institute, The National Bureau Of Standards, And The U.S. Agency For International Development Was Held At The New K-SRI Laboratories At Daeduk Near Dae Jeon In The Republic Of Korea On September 27-28, 1978. The Participants Representing Most Of The Countries In The South Asian And Western Pacific Region Discussed The Importance Of Providing Services In Measurement Science And Technology (metrology) To Governmental And Industrial Organizations In The Region. The Consensus Was That A Need For A Central National Capability In Metrology Existed In Countries At All Levels Of Development, And That That Central Organization Could Be A Focal Point For Intra- And International Cooperation, Which Alone Could Lead To Compatibility Of Measurements, A Prerequisite For Quality Control For All Kinds Of Products In Domestic And International Markets. Australia And New Zealand Had Established A Group Of Accredited Test Laboratories To Disseminate The Accuracies Inherent In The National Measurement System. Industry Was Increasingly Aware That Metrology Was Essential To Development, But The Specific Needs At Appropriate Accuracies Needed To Be Established By Surveys. The Korean Government Strongly Supported The Establishment Of Metrological Services As Is Well Illustrated By The New K-SRI Laboratories. (1)

A Workshop On Possible Contributions Of Cement And Concrete Technology To Energy Conservation By The Year 2000 Was Held At The National Bureau Of Standards On October 3 And 4, 1977. The Purpose Of The Workshop Was To Identify And Record Ideas On Possible Contributions Of Cement And Concrete Technology To Energy Conservation In The Near Term And By The Year 2000. This Included Consideration Of Current Technology As Well As Areas In Which Technological Advances Might Be Realized. The Workshop Was Divided Into Working Groups On Cement Composition, Cement Production, Blending Materials, Concrete Production, Efficient Use Of Concrete, And Institutional Factors. The Essential Results From The Six Working Groups Were Statements Of Energy-Saving Opportunities, Research Needs, And Unresolved Issues. The Statements, Which Are The Major Part Of This Report, Are Presented Without Critical Analysis. They Suggest, However, That There Are A Large Number Of Possible Opportunities Which Should Be Evaluated For Their Ability To Contribute To Energy Conservation In The Cement And Concrete Industries.

In The Past, For The Most Part, Precision Electromagnetic Measurements Were Concerned With The Measurement Of Parameters For Sinusoidal (or Steady State) Excitation And Response, E.g., Magnitude, Phase, And Power. One Reason For The Popularity Of Frequency Domain Measurement Was That In This Domain Only One Complete Data Point Need Be Recorded To Constitute A Useful Measurement. Recording A Thousand Data Points As Required For Precision Time Domain Waveform Measurements Simply Was Not Feasible. Today Such Frequency Domain Measurements Are Still Important But Now Share Their Importance With Transient Pulse Time Domain Measurements. With The Emergence Of Integrated Circuit Components For (1) Sampling Or Analog To Digital Conversion, (2) Storage, And (3) Control, Real Time Digital Waveform Recording Is Now Practical And Widespread In Usage. Furthermore, By Coupling Waveform Recording Components To Minicomputers And Microprocessors Integrated Circuitry It Is Now Possible To Record Single Events Using Compact Systems (instruments) Which Acquire, Record, Process, And Analyze Transient Signals. In Fact, The Incorporation Of Digital Computation Integrated Circuitry Appears To Be A Major Driving Force In Expanding The Role Of Waveform Measurements In The Academic, Industrial And Scientific Communities.

This Book Is An Elementary Introduction To The Laws Of Measurements. But The Approach Is Not An Abstract Discussion Of Measurements, Instead It Depends Upon Getting You To Make Measurements And, By Observing Collections Of Measurements, To Discover For Yourself Some Of The Properties Of Measurements. The Idea Is To Learn Something About Measurement That Will Be Useful-no Matter What Is Being Measured. Some Hint Is Given Of The Devices That Scientists And Measurements Specialists Use To Get More Out Of The Available Equipment. Understanding Something About The Laws Of Measurements, A Person May Be Able To Get The Answers To Your Own Research Problems With Half The Usual Amount Of Work. No Young Scientist Can Afford To Pass Up A Topic That May Double His Scientific Achievements. (2)

This Paper Presents A Model For Measuring The Benefits Of Improved Accuracy In Test Equipment. The Model Permits Calculation Of The Probability Of Accepting A Unit Under Test (UUT) That Is Out Of Specifications (i.e., Consumer's Loss) And The Probability Of Rejecting A UUT That Is Within Specifications (i.e., Producer's Loss) For Alternative Levels Of Test Equipment Accuracy. Accuracy Is Defined In Terms Of Both The Systematic And The Random Measurement Error Of The Equipment. Other Parameters That Are Taken Into Account By The Model Are The Mean And Variance Of The UUT Attribute Of Interest, The Performance Specifications Of The UUT, And The Test Specifications Which Define Acceptance And Rejection In Terms Of Test Measurement Results. A Discussion Of The Economic Consequences Of Consumer's Loss And Producer's Loss Is Included. The Model May Be Used To Optimize Both Procurement Policy For New Test Equipment As Well As Maintenance And Calibration Policy For Existing Test Equipment. (1)

Within Each Research Area, A Goal Is Given As Well As A Number Of Objectives To Achieve The Goal. A Recommended Approach To Accomplish Each Objective Is Also Given. (1)
Throughout The United States, Increasing Concern Is Being Expressed For The Need To More Fully Utilize The Existing Building Stock. The Report Documents A Process That Was Initiated In Late 1977 And Continues To The Present Time In Which Particular Regulatory Problems Impacting Building Rehabilitation Were Identified, A Regulatory Concept Which Responded To These Problems Was Formulated, And The Actual Implementation Of The New Approach In The State Of Massachusetts. Article 22 Of The Massachusetts State Building Code Is Printed In The Appendix Of The Report And Four Case Studies Of Actual Buildings Which Were Rehabilitated Are Included. (1)
